Your legal obligations

Legal Obligations


Simply put, we make sure you’re covered. As a registered waste carrier we always ensure that your waste is managed lawfully.

Duty of care scheme

Under our scheme, all the requirements for an environmental audit are met. We provide accurate records, update your information, and keep your Waste Transfer Notes for the required two-year period, ready for inspection at any time.

Pre-treatment regulations

You are required to pre-treat any non-hazardous waste you send to landfill. This regulation helps increase waste, recycling and recovery and helps to reduce potentially polluting emissions from landfill. With an extensive network of treatment facilities across the UK, we can make sure you meet your legal obligations.
